The design of 2022 is “organic”. This is demonstrated by the furnishing that during this year have highlighted our recovered relationship with nature and its forces.
The result is objects with sculptural shapes, soft and material lines, which provoke tactile experiences and all the more suggestive when they involve another sense: sight. Like the waters of rivers or celestial bodies, these furnishings aspire to convey a feeling of extreme lightness, as if they were floating in the water or air.
The organic geometries of the Ghia coffee table collection - designed by Studio Altherr Désile Park for Arper - give life to evocative archipelagos made of soft lines and tactile materials. The sensations they instill are of calm and harmony.
Also for Arper, Doshi Levien creates the Shaal sofa, “as soft as a basket full of cushions”. The intent of Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien was to respect the typical lightness of Arper, creating a structured but at the same time light furniture, almost "floating or sliding on the floor" like water in the course of a river. Dualism is the intrinsic essence of Shaal: "tailored but soft, generous but light, stable but adaptable, sustainable but precious".
Comfort, modern art and a progressive character. In one word, all this is Moon, the armchair designed by Patrick Norguet for Artifort. Like the satellite whose name it bears, it cannot fail to catch everyone's eye in a room. Its main feature, once again, is its resistance to gravity, so it seems to levitate rather than lean on the ground. With a delicate and relaxing design, it delivers on its promise of the highest level of comfort and relaxation.
Fluid lines and open back. The silhouette of Suit is made to follow the organic shapes of the bodies that sit on it. It dresses them as an elegant tailored suit that wraps and embraces. It also allows the wearer to feel extremely comfortable and at ease. Design by Monica Förster for Artifort.
Against all convention, Raw Color invents a new way of conceiving conviviality and rest. "Why can't a chair become a work of art when it's not in use?" Why can't an everyday object be a sculpture at the same time? This is how Link and Loop by Sancal were born, two sofas with a free, even anarchic approach. And amusing, because they play with sinuous shapes and joyful colours.
From wherever you look at it, the refinement of the Secolo's Yoshida Lounge Chair is always the same. From the front: two oversized cushions that seem to float and stay balanced even though their supports are not visible. From the back: a solid wood slab that serves as a base and back. The effect is natural and extremely elegant.
"Forms that are lost in time, modeled by the erosion of the wind, sun and rain, become sculptures that almost seem to emerge from the ground." Dolmen's organic design by Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance for Tacchini, needs no other words to be explained. It is a series of tables made of marble, in particular Breccia Bresciana or Fior di Pesco Carsico, which show the imposing forces of nature.
Inside it encloses a sphere of light that looks like a pearl. Outside, it is wrapped in a ceramic shell, with a rough working that further enhances the materiality of the lamp. The organic forms of Sophia, designed by the creative genius of Studiopepe for Tacchini, go so far as to eliminate the distance between artifice and nature.
A true Wittmann is born from the design of Luca Nichetto. The Paradise Bird Sofa surprises with its unusual lines, noble elegance and unparalleled comfort. It also manifests "an attitude to life, the emotion of making freedom and refuge, openness and reassurance interact".
When the rigorous geometry of the legs meets the softness and roundness of the backrest, Wabi is born, the bed by Alain Gilles for Saba. The effect of this meeting is surprising: the harmony, the beauty of something that comes from intuition and spontaneity. Almost risking a natural imperfection. Or, perhaps, just hoping to be swept away.
Its curved lines and the enveloping shapes of the cushions, recall again waterways or mountain paths. Cozy Curve is designed by Francesco Rota for Mdf Italia, with the desire to transfer the memory of nature and all that it brings with it into the home: freedom, hospitality, pleasure.
